Pickens Plan and Natural Gas

There has been much PR-driven hype lately about the so called "Pickens Plan," T. Boone Pickens' plan to save us from our thirst for foreign oil. One interesting aspect of this plan is the emphasis on natural gas, especially for automobiles.

While the Pickens Plan is just one plan, it has been useful in shedding light on the potential importance of natural gas for our country. I'll be interested to see how that impacts the national dialogue on energy.

The Pickens Plan is so pro-natural gas, it makes you wonder if Chesapeake CEO Aubrey McClendon and his "Clean Skies" Foundation didn't have something to do with it (not that McClendon needs help self-promoting).

Chesapeake is definitely looking at the Pickens Plan as good business. On their website they've got news links to an interview with old T Boone:
